About this book

This book demonstrates different statistical techniques for analyzing health-related data as well as providing new techniques for forecasting and/or projecting the incidence of diseases/disorders. It presents information on a variety of health related issues from the developed and developing world.   Featuring cutting edge research from distinguished applied demographers and public health specialists, the book bridges the gap between theory and research. Each chapter provides methods and materials that can be used to conduct further research aimed at promoting public health issues.   This book is intended for public health professionals, health policy makers, social epidemiologists, administrators, researchers, and students in the fields of applied demography and public health who are interested in exploring the potential of ground-breaking research or who want to further develop their existing research techniques. It complements another volume in the Applied Demography Series, Applied Demography and Public Health (Springer, 2013), which describes how applied demographic techniques can be used to help address public health issues.

Reviews

“Nazrul Hoque, Beverly Pecotte, and Mary McGehee have brought together an outstanding group of scholars who use demographic tools to examine public health patterns and trends in the United States and around the world. In doing so, the book will help its readers understand that health and longevity patterns and trends are tied to crucial political, economic, social, and demographic contexts unfolding in our world.” (Robert A. Hummer, Ph.D., Howard W. Odum Distinguished Professor of Sociology, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill)
